Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) announced Thursday he will not run for president in 2020.

"I will keep calling out Donald Trump and phony populism".

The Ohio Democrat has announced his 2020 decision to a group of home-state reporters.

First, I want to say thank you.

His decision comes after recent visits to several early-voting states to highlight his worker-friendly policy agenda. From the farmers we met in Iowa, to the childcare workers we met in New Hampshire, the hotel workers in Nevada and the people struggling to overcome homelessness in SC - it is clear the dignity of work is a value that unites all of us. Brown's victory was powered by strong support in many blue-collar areas of the state where Trump had prevailed.

During a tour stop in Las Vegas last month, Brown promised to be "the most pro-union candidate" for president if he ran. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg also confirmed he wouldn't be running. We've seen candidates begin taking up the dignity of work fight, and we have seen voters across the country demanding it-because dignity of work is a value that unites all of us. Democrats are awaiting word from former vice president Joe Biden and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke about whether they will undertake highly anticipated campaigns that could reshape the race. Thank you for your support as I ran for re-election in OH, and thank you for your support as we traveled the country on the Dignity of Work tour. "The best place for me to make that fight is in the United States Senate", Brown said in a statement.

It's now a very mobile weather situation and typically March, as Atlantic troughs harbouring disturbances sweep-in from the West. Saturday night is when we'll see the weather take a messy turn. "This will make for hazardous conditions on roads and paths".

But the Ohio Democrat said he still plans to play an active role in 2020 to help keep the issue of workers' rights at the forefront of the presidential campaign.

Brown's political appeal would have been greatest among Democrats who believe the party's surest path to the White House is through the industrial Midwest, nominating a candidate who can win enough Trump voters in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to reclaim those states.
